Do you have access to the Grace of God?
Through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
Romans 5:2 New King James Version
THOUGHTS ABOUT TODAY’S VERSE…
Our access to the grace of God is through our faith in Jesus. Nothing else we do can provide us with access to that grace. Not our works, not our church attendance, not our denominational beliefs, and definitely not how ‘good’ we are. The only way we have access to the grace of God, the only way we can come to know God is through Jesus Christ and our faith in Him. In reality it is only Jesus Christ and Him crucified for you and your believe in that, that will give you entrance to God’s Grace. Do what you may, do what you will, but if you don’t have faith in God through Jesus Christ. If you haven’t made Jesus “The Lord” of your life, you’ll not enter in to God’s grace and His rest, nor shall you see or enter into the Kingdom of God and eternal life.
Most Holy Father, thank You for Your Grace and Your mercy through Your Son Jesus. No other way is open to You except through Him. You made it so clear in Your Word. Spoken by the very mouth of Your own Son Jesus, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No man comes to the Father except through Me. (John 14:6) I thank You Father for giving me the way, the truth, and the Life through Jesus Christ. For I, who was once dead in sin, have been made alive through Jesus, my Lord and my Savior. I give Him all the glory and honor, that in Him I may also glorify You. In Jesus’ name, Father, I pray.
